What makes an ideal applicant?

Simply, understanding your work is a journey to perfect your art.

The world's greatest sushi craftsman, Jiro Ono (made even more famous by Netflix), said "I fell in love with my work and dedicated my life to it, even at 85 I don't feel like retiring". Working in kitchens like Black Velvet Cakes brings many challenges, but in every challenge there is art. From understanding the efficiency and accuracy in all our cleaning methods, to the delicate balance of colours and textures in our cakes, Black Velvet Cakes will enhance your own understanding and experience of your work that will impact you for a lifetime.

Humbled that your art is an essential ingredient in life's biggest celebrations.
Celebration Cakes are unlike any other cake, they communicate love. Our clients enjoy our cakes at their most important life events - Weddings, Major Milestone Birthdays, Big Corporate Achievements and Baby Celebrations. The cake is eternalised in all the photos where the party toasts the celebrant and culminates the joy and love of the recipient. Every cake we make, this is on our minds and we review each cake to ensure it will bring that extra special Wow to it's event.

Enjoy creating with your hands.

As a child, did you enjoy classes like Art, Home Economics, Wood/Steel Work? Or have you enjoyed making and baking at home? Of course when we begin any new skill, it can take time to get your hands right to make art efficiently and with flair. Whether you're a highly experienced pastry chef or decorator or believe you have a flair for creating with your hands, we definitely want to hear from you.

Our Culture.

Culture begins at the top and Black Velvet's director, Luke Anthony, has had an extensive global career implementing creative solutions for many industries from car manufacturing to 5-star hospitality and travel. He was also a national level athlete who would spend hours a day perfecting technique to get milliseconds of improvements in preparation for competition. The diversity of his experience and passion for perfection in technique allows him to inspire, motivate and challenge the team in all aspects of what we do.
